Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Re: How did you find your way here?

My foray to this site was lets say well rounded. T he computer scene flew passed on by for a miriad of reasons.The first info I got was calling McIntosh and they informed me that there is actually a site that lets you d/l shows and lists upon lists of gear.I had no computer so after talking w/ the archivist by phone he said go to your library and google something. So lets see how good this machine is and I asked away about TWOS(a show that I was definately there.Well not only did it give info about THE WALL there was like 15 pages of the stuff.As you guys have found out I'm very critical and rip them if it needs to be done,the amount of info was overwelming and pretty much started by asking an audio engineer if there was a place where peple like me wanted to yap about amps,chords, keys,and putting it all together.From then on we became more critical and then telling the story about asking my friends, didn't they play that song a half an hour ago. Now I hear HDCD QUALITY w/lists of shows and who was on the line-up w/ them.All in all I was quite impressed and found for the most part that not every show was great(very far from it)and so it goes 58yrs old 28 shows and yes they weren't all good.
